ADVANTAGE, DASCHLE! Well, sort of. There’s finally some sensible environmental legislation. AP reports that “New government rules effective Wednesday no longer require environmental studies before trees are logged or burned to prevent forest fires. The rules also limit appeals of such projects.”

It will be fun watching the environmental left condemn this, since the rules basically echo the same legislation that Tom Daschle quietly slipped into a spending bill last year to exempt his home state of South Dakota, back when he was Senate majority leader.
